Pride and Prejudice

My Summer reading plan for fiction is as follows: read classic novels that I've never read before. Luckily (?), my engineering education leaves me plenty of options to choose from.

I read Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice on the advice of a fellow Montana blogger. A great novel - sparkling wit, a very appealing protagonist (Elizabeth Bennet), great sense of irony, awesome authorial stlye. Unexpected reading for Big Mike?

On tap: Northanger Abbey, Candide, and Treasure Island.

Hey, you're gonna LOVE Northanger Abbey! Trust me! (And P&P ain't bad either.)
